  • QuickPwned: Fast Windows Jailbreaking Released!
    The iPhone Dev Team released a new jailbreak tool that uses the application processor, and "is impossible to permanently damage your device." Based on a new exploit, no custom firmware building required.

    Currently this software is Windows only but support for other platforms should arrive soon. This also requires that your iPhone is already firmware version 2.0.1 but further support should also be added soon. No this IS NOT a 3g unlock. Don't ask.

    How to use:
    1) Drop an unmodified 2.0.1 IPSW downloaded directly from Apple into the same
    folder as the quickpwn.exe binary.
    2) Close all other applications, including of course iTunes and iTunes Helper
    3) Double-click:
    iPhone 3G.bat if you have an iPhone 3G
    iPhone 2G.bat if you have a first-generation iPhone
    iPod touch.bat if you have an iPod touch.
    3) Follow the on-screen instructions

    If you need the 2.0.1 firmware files find them in our downloads.

    Edit: poorlad created a quick gui version of QuickPwn. Note: It IS still beta

      anyone else having problems with using a custom boot image? i've tried replacing the 'logo.png' and 'recovery.png' files in the quickpwn folder with my own images and they don't seem to work when i jailbreak the phone. i was successfully able to jailbreak the phone, but whenever i boot up my phone it's just a blank screen before it gets to the springboard. any ideas?

      Since I haven't seen it on App Store or Cydia (yet) then I would think not. The author probably hasn't gotten around to porting it or for some reason cannot.

      I assume you use windows since you are posting on this thread? Do you use Vista or XP? Try reinstalling iTunes.

      OK. I tried this just for fun (since I've already pwnd my phone to 2.0.1). I restored, revirginized and then tried quickpwn. Don't get it. Seems like more of a pain in the a**. I get it that you don't need iTunes but then if I have to do a full restore later it's easier to just use my custom firmware since I've got everything pre-installed. It's great the dev team found a new exploit but I prefer to stick with pwnage tool since I have a lot more flexibility.

      Everything works but does anyone know how to add different boot/restore icons? I figured it would be as simple as replacing the two PNG files with two other PNG files with the same names but no. Any ideas?

      Cr@p! I did this too fast and forgot to upgrade to 2.0.1 first. Jailbreak worked, but does anyone know where I might run into trouble?

      This seems like a dumb question but here goes. I did the whole process of quickpwn and it finished fine. I started with 2G winpwned iphone on 2.0 firmware. My question is that in the Settings-->General-->About am I supposed to see Version 2.0.1 because I am still seeing 2.0 (5A347). The phone works fine but I am not sure what version I am supposed to see.

      Also, should I have started with 2.0.1 already on my phone?

      Thanks

      Works like a charm. One note, it will count down for you before you have to press the on button. Then it really doesn't count the 30 seconds for you, but you will get a note to press a button to continue just about the time the 30 seconds is up. I'm no genuis here folks, this works really well. (3G is what I did).
